  2. ファイルを表示したユーザー名を所有者に表示する機能の拡張について (About extending the ability to display the user name of a file to the owner)

    [OneDrive 管理センター] - [ファイルを表示したユーザー名を所有者に表示する] の設定をオンにした状態で、OneDrive 上にあるファイルにマウス カーソルを合わせると "閲覧者名" が表示されるが、サイト コレクションの管理者設定にて所有者を追加し、追加した所有者で OneDrive 上のファイルにマウス カーソルを合わせても閲覧者名が表示されません。​
    追加した所有者でも、OneDrive 上のファイルにマウス カーソルを合わせた際に "閲覧者名" を表示できる機能の追加をお願いします。​

    ※本機能は、ユーザーがどのファイルに興味を持っているかなどの確認が簡単にできるため、非常に便利な機能のため拡張を期待します。​

  3. Allow users to change the OneDrive folder directory (long company name issue)

    The default folder for OneDrive (by design) creates a problem that it conflicts with the maximum 255 character path length issue.

    For a persons business OneDrive area
    C:\user\FirstnameLastname\OneDrive - LongCompanyName

    For a Company Group/Team site
    C:|users\FirstnameLastname\LongCompanyName\LongCompanyName - LibraryName

    It means that you are massively restricted on how you can use OneDrive to avoid reaching the 255 character path length limit.

    I contacted support and i am told this is "by design", it isn't really fit for the purpose, other cloud storage providers dont have this issue and allow you to change it, it is such a simple feature.

  4. more OneDrive Personal Vault lock options - 20mins is too low

    OneDrive Personal Vault is a great OneDrive feature 'though in order to make it more usable, I wish it had more locking options - namely, whenever I unlock it, it'll lock itself automatically in 20mins.

    I am of the opinion that 20mins is too few - I wish I could unlock it upon login and have it locked at logout.

    This is because if you have a Personal Vault file opened & it then locks 20mins later, you can't save the changes without unlocking the Personal Vault again (with the subsequent risk of data loss).

    So please consider either allowing…

  5. OneDrive の同期クライアントで クラウド上 (オンライン) だけにデータを保存したい

    データをクラウドだけ (オンライン) だけに保存できるようにして欲しい。
    それをグループポリシーなどで強制できるようにしたい。

    つまり、ローカルにデータを残さないで PC 端末紛失時などの対策にしたい。
    これは日本の企業で良く求められる機能です。

  6. One Drive Known Folder Move

    Do not sync shortcuts (.lnk) from Desktop Folder to onedrive when using Known Folder Move This causes duplicate shortcuts if you set up a new device and sync. If you have the same shortcuts on the desktop as your original machine you will then get a "Copy" shortcut from the sync

  7. Allow PC to continue shutting down without any operations when users shut down PCs with “Processing” status of sync.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    PC のシャットダウン時の同期の進行状況の表示について
    Allow PC to continue shutting down without any operations when users shut down PCs with “Processing” status of sync.


    ■Description(内容):
    同期中の "処理中" の状態で、PC のシャットダウンをしようとすると、進行中のファイル アップロードがユーザーに通知されるように新機能が追加されておりますが、PC のシャットダウン時に操作なしに画面を戻らせることなく、シャットダウンを遂行する機能の追加を要望いたします。
    または、進行中のファイル アップロードをユーザーに通知する機能をオフにする機能の追加を要望いたします。

    In current design, we have new feature to notify uses about on-going file uploading if users shut down PCs with “Processing” status of sync.
    However, we would like to see the feature to allow PC to continue shutting down without any operation or getting back to the previous screen, or the feature to disable notification about on-going file uploading.

  8. Do not show error messages for excluded filetypes

    When I exclude filetypes from syncing (using Admin center or Set-SPOTenantSyncClientRestriction) they are marked as "file could not be synced". This is also shown by a red cross.

    This behavior confuses Users that think that there is a real problem and furthermore makes it impossible for unqualified users to distinguished between this "by design" errors and real problems

    So please do not show error messages for excluded filetypes or deliver an option for disabling these Error messages.

    When I used the OneDrive client app to sync with SharePoint Online document library, files will be moved from OneDrive client app to the local pc.
    I hope for a new setting to prevent moving of files while still permitting the copy of files saved in the document library.

  11. Desktop Icon Duplication

    In a shared computer environment, an admin may choose to install the Team Machine Wide Installer MSI.

    Teams is then installed at every user logon if it doesn't exist in the users profile

    "%ProgramFiles%\Teams Installer\Teams.exe --checkInstall --source=default"

    Is put in the following key

    HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    This presents an issue when using OneDrive Known Folder Move. When a new user logs on to a PC, OneDrive has its own installation and update process. The Teams installer will start and finish before OneDrive has installed, updated and initiated Known Folder Move for the new user profile.

    Teams will create a desktop…

  12. Automatically convert OneNote notebooks in a compatible format when user migrate to OneDrive

    OneNote notebooks cannot be migrated to OneDrive without going through OneNote and without user action.
    The storage of OneNote notebooks as a folder and files is not supported on OneDrive. But with the Known Folders function, OneDrive move automatically these OneNote files to OneDrive and break the OneNote synchronization.
    Is it possible to obtain an automatic conversion of notebooks when KFM is executed or a way to automate the migration to OneDrive notebooks?

  13. Personal vault needs to sync while locked

    Personal vault needs to background sync while locked. Moved 2.5GB of data into personal vault, 20 minutes later it locked in the middle of first sync, then wouldn't let me unlock it ("something went wrong try again"). I had to completely disconnect my pc and reconnect to OneDrive to get it to start syncing again... and then none of my folders were in the vault because the folder hadn't finished the initial sync! Bad design Microsoft. Personal vault HAS to be able to sync while locked, otherwise it's pretty much useless. Oh and by the way, after disconnect/reconnect, I did…

  14. OneDrive Client Sync Status Monitoring

    We need to be able to programatically check the Sync Status. If a client has sync issues, this could lead to data loss. This is also voiced here:
    https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/273493-office-365-admin/suggestions/15879783-reporting-and-or-monitoring-for-onedrive-client-sy?page=1&per_page=20

    And a custom script made is not working for Files On Demand:
    https://github.com/rodneyviana/ODSyncService

    We manage thousands of Windows PC and would like to know when a OneDrive client has been out of sync for a long period of time, receive an alert and remediate.

    This could be done via a powershell command

    When opening OneNote Notebook in OneDrive for Business on an OneNote client and the UPN is changed, due to the URL for OneDrive for Business being changed all the Notebooks need to be close and reopened again, and this closing and reopening takes up a lot of time when there are lots of Notebooks opened. Thus I…

    Thus please implement a feature where file extensions can be chosen and excluded from the Windows 10 storage senser feature.

    We have large compressed file repositories composing many smaller files but only some parts get updated and we dont want the entire Zip file to have to be re-synced. Dropbox already do this for Zip and RAR files: https://www.dropbox.com/lp/file-compression

  20. PowerShell script function to control OneDrive sync start stop.

    We want a script to schedule and control the following scenarios:
    1. When located on our corporate network, enable OneDrive sync anytime.
    2. When on mobile hotspot, and during normal business hours, allow OneDrive sync with notification warning they are on a metered network.
    3. When on mobile hotspot, and after business hours, every 15 minutes pop up a notification warning user they are on a metered network.
    4. When on home network, enable OneDrive sync anytime.
    Outcomes should be achievable by PowerShell or a user interface.
